Fund the gap

Financing the future of UK SMEs.

About the research

The way we fund SMEs has changed. Business leaders are having to navigate an increasingly complex map of choices around how they fund their ambitions.

The Praetura team are canvassing the UK’s lending landscape to better understand the state of lending in 2023. The research team has surveyed and interviewed over 400 business owners, directors, finance brokers, advisers and stakeholders to discover their thoughts and opinions on the industry’s past, present and future.

Together with their partners, Praetura wants to help build a better finance sector to help UK SMEs get the funding they need to succeed.
